I am the queen of changing my hair. I had left it for a month after having my extensions to get back to it's 100% best before I decided to do anything drastic. Noon Salon on the Lisburn Road invited me down to have my hair done and check out their new salon. Previously Synergy salon, the team have now rebranded and moved upstairs to a more intimate space. As you can see from the pictures, the salon is bright and great fun. It was designed by the same people behind the Made in Belfast quirky restaurants so it's very far removed from the clinical salons that seem to be the norm. My favourite bit was the tv screen that was bolted to the ceiling meaning you had something to focus on whilst getting your hair washed!
I decided to have my hair completely refreshed. I needed my roots done and the cut needed a tidy up. Noon is a Wella salon. I really love Wella products and find that they've really changed as a brand over the past few years (as they were bough over by P&G). Shomisha did my colour. She kept my roots dark (and covered all of my grey!) and lifted the ends with some hand-painted balayage to give me some depth. This was then toned with a toffee colour at the basin. My hair was washed with the new Wella Elements range which is all sulphate and paraben free. The range smells delicious and my hair was so clean after. The salon owner, Tony, did my cut. Tony's background is with Toni & Guys and continues to build on his knowledge with Vidal Sasson. I loved his attitutde to his craft and he has passed this on to the rest of his staff, including Shomisha who has been with him for 10 years. Tony asked me what my end goal was for my hair. I explained I would like to have my hair longer for summer. He then opted to keep my hair longer at the front but take some weight from the layers and back to make it sit better. I was really impressed by my cut but also by his dedication to explaining what he was doing.
Tony was also very kind and gave me a bottle of Wella Dry Thermal Image spray. He used this on my hair after blowdrying and before straightening. Unlike other heat protection sprays that can be really heavy and leave a film on your hair, this is light, smells amazing and make the hair look so shiny. A definite HERO PRODUCT!
Thank you so much to Tony, Shomisha and all at Noon Salon for a lovely experience. For more on the salon, have a little nosey at their Facebook. They run offers such as 25% off during the week which is great for a high quality service. Overall, Noon is an easy going salon experience. I'd highly recommend it for anyone wanting a bit hair change and is a bit afraid or for people who like a fun, relaxed environment.
